Oracle ILOM provides an Advanced Power Capping Policy on the SP that helps to enforce the system target power limit. System administrators can choose to set either a soft cap with a grace period or a hard cap to keep the peak permitted power consumption under the target power limit. In addition, system administrators can set violation actions for when the set Power Capping Policy is violated.
The Power Capping Policy properties are configurable from the Oracle ILOM CLI and Web interface as of firmware version 3.1.1 or later. For further information about how to configure the Power Capping Policy properties in Oracle ILOM, see the following procedure.
